today ends my first 3 days of vacation … i'm in today for a few hours then Monday-Wednesday I'm off again. I can't wait for that to start …. I'm a little scared … we go back to the specialist again on Monday afternoon to have a reeval … That made yesterday a little hard because Xamp wanted to be able to do a little checkup himself on me. Yes, he knows what to look for and how to do it, but i wanted nothing to do with it. He was upset with me. I can understand why, but it doesn't mean that i like it any better.
I should check in on the F&P board, it's been a while and i feel like i could use all the help i can get for this.
I saw my old man for his birthday on Friday … first we power cleaned the house … i didn't want him coming into a wicked huge mess. It looked great when we were done! I can't get over how much better everything was and we didn't even make BIG changes to anything. A little shuffle here, a little straighten here… Xamp said he knew my father wouldn't come in, but that's not the point to me.
we went over to the Sands and to the Carnegie deli to celebrate, just the two of us. Usually that makes for an okay day. He gave me 5 dollars and i won 37.75. 😀 So with THAT i was able to buy his lunch! I was so grateful to whatever deity was looking out for me that day because we didn't really have the money for me to take him out. Oh and while we were there i got a phonecall from Insphere agency asking me if i would be interviewed. I had to just check the message but i need to call them back today or e-mail them and see.
So after lunch He decided he wanted to do business too …i still don't get it really … we had to go over to Ice Cream World for him to talk to one of his clients. So he introduces me … acts like i have something to do with it and i do what i do everyday at work … while the person that matters makes small talk I go and check the product. I found 4 cans that had the old 'As Seen On Food TV' stickers on them … so i tried to get his attention …. he ignored me … i tried again … he turns away … so i get a little frustrated and bring the cones over to him … he yells at me … then is upset i wont get ice cream and we get out to the car and he rips me a new one because i made him look bad, insulted the business and it's not my responsibility. I told him to leave me there and i would get my own way home. I'm not putting up with it … so he takes the LONGEST way from Allentown back to Bethlehem yelling at me up and down Hamilton … I wanted to jump out the window …
then we get to the Hamilton bridge and he asks me "was this the bridge your friend jumped off of"
EX-CUSE-ME?!?!?!?! … first of all, NO … second of all, WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU BRING THAT UP …. it's still a sore subject for me … so i tell him what happened when Brian jumped off the other bridge on the other side of town.
then we got back to my house, he gives me the stuff from my mother, i give him the stuff to give to my mother … enter another lecture. He went home … and i called her to tell her all about it.
she was upset about the whole cone thing because HE started it and now he wants me to have nothing to do with it. well fine, I'll happily take on the SAME attitude that i have about Wegman's that i have about your cones. FORGET YOU! He said in an e-mail to me later how this was all his fault and blahblahblah but he had a good day and liked seeing me … again, whatever!
um… Celtic Classic is this weekend too. We finally went over to see it yesterday afternoon … i wanted us to go over for a lot of other stuff in the morning but we didn't get there. It was nice going out for breakfast though, i guess it was more brunch because i had an omelet and he had a burger. it was much better than last year and i won the shirt that i won that says HAGGIS?! on it with a sheep. we spent a few hours walking around and came home. I wanted to spend more time there, but the stuff i wanted to do and what he wanted to do was different and we're short on money. So, we just got Lime Fizz and gave the last 7 of our food tickets away to a mother and her young son. That made them happy. I didn't get a funnel cake but that's a decision i made … i was just disappointed. I feel like i had this weekend planed for months and it was nothing like what i hoped it would be. It just turned out to be a bummer.
Xamp wasn't happy either, he knew how much i wanted this to be good … but we did what he wanted to do and after we talked earlier about how he feels about concerts and events i didn't want to subject him to have to go to yet another concert with no seats and its just a mess. So, we didn't see the two bands i wanted to go see, but we did have a nice walk downtown and back home. I even learned that those trees that drop those weird green balls are actually walnuts! My mother has a few of those big trees in her yard and we had no idea… so we broke one open and looked at it and i had no idea. that was really neat!
but here i am … i've got 10 minutes before i have to go back to work and I'm trying to get myself to some type of zen-ish place. Today can't be too bad… i'm only going to be there from 5-1:30… i can be quiet that long…. i am sooooooooo scared about my review though … they moved it back because i was written up … so i get my 'month eval' … i wish i could throw my apron at them and quit then … but that's rude! lol
ok … time to get organized ….
